Vintage Burberrys Prorsum Classic Trenchcoat Rain Coat Unisex M L Short
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful vintage trenchcoat/raincoat made in England by Burberry. The vintage Burberry is considered the ultimate in rainwear. This one can be buttoned either to the right or to the left, so I guess that it could be considered unisex, but please note the measurements. The coat has shoulder epaulets, raglan sleeves, a button-down rainguard at the right front chest and another rainguard across the back, button-down flapped slant pocket at either side, belt at the waist with brass hardware, kick pleat at the back, double breasted style and collar that can be worn either tight to the neck or open. The coat has Burberry’s classic check pattern lining - there are buttons to accommodate a wool lining, but none is provided. There are belts at the cuffs.
Age: Unknown, but my guess would be 1980s, maybe 90s - the buckles are plastic, not leather. Burberrys changed their name to Burberry in 1999, so this trench pre-dates 1999.
